Description A nasty piece of work that sets fire to an enemy, dealing damage over time.

Flare Gun is an incendiary weapon that sets targets on fire on hit. Targets on fire will take the damage of the weapon every second for the duration of the burn time. Compared to similar incendiary items like the Fire Bomb, the Flare Gun has a lower cooldown and a lower burn duration, as well as being a single target weapon rather than an area damage weapon. If item training is level 12, Flare Gun will also reduce healing for any target it hits.

Before the 4.0 update, it received a majority of its talents from Burnice's talent tree.

Patch history[edit | edit source]

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Flare Gun works well when paired with Cannon and Blast Cannon because of the increased damage against burning targets talent and perk cannons have. The range on Flare Gun is similar to Cannon and Blast Cannon, meaning they can be cycled to take advantage of the burning perk/talent.

Flare Gun can be paired with Sniper Cannon to have the damage against burning talent/perk increase the damage of critical hits, but the range on Flare Gun is about half the range of Sniper Cannon, so effective maneuvering and spacing is required.

Setting unfriends on fire also increases the damage of teammates' cannon damage against burning ships, but only if they have the appropriate perks or talents. Multiple instances of burning on a single target won't proc the damage against burning talent/perk more than once.
